Next walk: Shire Country Park, 9 April 2023

Our Easter Sunday walk will be through the Shire Country Park in south Birmingham.

The Shire Country Park is a local nature reserve along the River Cole Valley, with a mixture of wetlands, grasslands, woodland and heath. The park was named to honour the life and work of J.R.R. Tolkien who lived within its borders as a young child. Tolkien’s childhood adventures in the park are said to have inspired some of his later works.

The 6.5 km circular walk takes us from Sarehole Mill, an eighteenth century watermill, along the river Cole.  The walking is generally easy and there are no stiles.

As on all of our walks we will stop for a break so bring something to eat and drink. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.

Contact us for details on how to go to the start of the walk.

We are still collecting for Women’s Aid, and optional donations of 1£ (or more) will be welcome.

Join us!
